Slackware :: Access To NTFS USB Devices From Dolphin?

Aug 1, 2010

I have some problems accessing NTFS USB devices from Dolphin. If I mount by hand the device, mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/disk I can access to the disk from Dolphin. mount command reports: /dev/sdc1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=512)When the same disk is mounted through Dolphin (by clickin on the disk icon), I cannot see any content. mount command reports: /dev/sdc1 on /media/FLS-U2-300 type fuseblk suid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=512,default_permissions)root@obelix:~# As you can see, mount command reports different configurations. I suspect the extra parameters used by Dolphine causing problems but I don't know how to configure KDE to change the mount options. This problem is new to Slackware 13.1. My previous 13.0 configuration had not that problem

Ubuntu :: Mounted Devices Not Showing In Dolphin Places List

Jan 16, 2011

This is probably me looking but not seeing an option somewhere. I re-installed 10.10 over 10.04 by formatting the root partition but keeping the home partition the same, to save me a lot of work. (64 bit) However, now when I mount a CD, DVD or USB stick, they don't appear in Dophin's "Places" window. What have I missed please?

OpenSUSE :: Permission Error When Writing To NTFS In Dolphin / Get Rid Of It?

Mar 2, 2010

I'm fairly new to linux and I have a dual boot laptop with OpenSUSE 11.2 and Windows 7. I have ntfs-3g and have full read-write ability to my Windows drive through OpenSUSE thanks to NTFS - openSUSE. The only problem is whenever I write to the NTFS Windows drive via Dolphin it does the writing but I get an alert box saying:
"Could not change permissions for <path to new file>" with an OK button.
If I write more than one file I'll get one alert box for each file unless I don't press OK until after it finishes writing all the files in which case it will just give me that one that it was showing (once I press OK there aren't any more boxes).
Since I have full ability to read-write this isn't that big of a problem it's just annoying as hell an I'm sure it's pretty simple to get rid of. code...

Slackware :: Dolphin Keeps Freezing With KDE 4.2.3+

Jan 10, 2010

I've been ignoring this problem for about a week but its getting on my last nerve. Dolphin keeps freezing for about 20 seconds when ever I try to move or open files sometimes, It will just sit there and then once it returns it will very quickly execute my command. It seems im not the only one having this issue [url]
I still can't seem to find a fix. I'm running the most recent current BTW

Debian Multimedia :: Access 2nd Partition With Dolphin - KDE

Jan 20, 2011

I have recently installed Debian 6.0 Testing with KDE4.4.5. I have two fixed ext3 partitions on the hard drive but when I click on the second partition in Dolphin the following error message appears: "org.freedesktop.hal.device.volume.permission denied, refusing to mount /dev/hda5 for uid=1000". I have searched the kde forum and other sites and have found reference to it on other distributions. It appears to be a hal configuration problem. KMint kde 4.4 seems to have resolved the problem as my other partition is running the same kde version and I can access the debian partitions. Perhaps I should just manually mount the partitions when needed!

General :: PWD To Use Browser - Root Access With Dolphin SU

Jun 8, 2010

I have Mepis 8.5 and I can access root Dolphin etc. but I cannot get past the ID and pwd panel when I try to use Firefox to see my localhost sites. When I installed, I knew I should not have made using the browser to be password needed, but it was too late so I am stuck with it. As I haven't used it for a while I have fotgotten the user and pwd for this area. How can I find it or negate it so I have access once I put the localhost url in the broswer?

Slackware :: Dolphin Crashes And Dbus

Oct 6, 2010

I am running 64-bit current. I have not identified which update started the Dolphin crashes, but it recently has been happening very often, usually within a few seconds of starting it, but not always.

Googling suggested that it might be a dbus issue, so I rolled my own package using dbus-1.4.0 and the slackbuild from the 64 bit current source.

Dolphin has been rock solid since. I noticed that there was an 'allow root globally' patch which I commented out. I am guessing that this may affect applications that I have not used yet or the issue has been fixed in version 1.4.

I have not seen any evidence that other current users have had this problem, but maybe Robby would consider an upgrade?

Slackware :: How To Run Dolphin / Konqueror As Root

Feb 25, 2010

I have been using KDE4 for some time now as a test and have noticed what at first seems to be a major omission. There is no way to run dolphin or konqueror as root. Old style KDE3 in SLackware 12 had the "root konqueror" option, (or whatever it was named in the KDE menus), but KDE4 doesn't have this. I tried adding a new menu itme in KDE4 to run dolphin as root but it had odd errors about "could not start process" and "could not to talk to klauncher" - it would not display any files from my directory. Konqueror had similar odd problems - something about klauncher and Dbus server. This is a pain as there are sometimes files I wish to move/delete which I need to be root to do and it would be nice to have a gui to do this.

Anyone got any quick ways (from KDE) of achieving this or setting up a KDE menu item to run a file manager (dolphin/konqueror) as root ? I don't always want to have to run "su -c mc" in a terminal to do admin stuff in the filesystem and I don't want to run KDE as root.

Slackware :: 13.37 - Strange Happenings In Dolphin

My slackware 13.37 64 with 4 gig ram , has a strange thing in dolphin. My machine runs very well with kDE4.6.1 from alien and no other problems. When I copy files to a folder it does not show , I have to close dolphin and reopen to see those files. If I click on a compressed file and select extract folder here it does the same.

OpenSUSE :: Dolphin Access Permission Display Difference 11.2/11.3

Sep 20, 2010

I'm using Dolphin 1.5 on KDE 4.5.1 on openSUSE 11.2, 11.3 and 11.4(M1).

I select a folder and right-click to get "properties." On the "permissions" tab, I select "advanced permissions." Up until that moment, everything is the same on all three versions. Then -

On 11.2, I get a panel sub-headed "access permissions" which has one column headed "special" which has three buttons. Below that is a panel in which I can add, edit or delete entries so that I can, say, grant one user special permissions.

On 11.3 and 11.4, I get a panel with the same heading, "access permisssions," but which is very different apart from that. Below the heading is a table containing 4x3 buttons for setting "user," "group" and "others" but no panel such as in 11.2.

This different behaviour occurs for the identical user and folder. I've checked that Dolphin preferences are the same for 11.2 and 11.3. Why am I getting a less useful display from the later versions of openSUSE?

Slackware :: Disabling KDE Dolphin Preview And Kio_thumbnail

Oct 3, 2010

Hi everybody! I am completely stumped with KDE's Dolphin's preview policy. It started with me realizing that when as much as I mouse over an encrypted file (say, an ODS file created and encrypted with OpenOffice), KDE pops up a password prompt. The culprit identifies itself as kio_thumbnail. This is a feature so apparently useless, I would like to disable it no matter what. I know a work-around: hiding the Information panel seems to work. But I like the information panel. On top of that, the same kio_thumbnail does on occasion decide that my computer is underutilized (it feels like it happens during the idle times). It allocates my entire RAM, all 4 GiB of it, and does something fancy. It doesn't crash, however, and goes away a few minutes after I poke the computer.

I don't want a daemonized thumbnailer, is there a way to disable kio_thumbnail or make it be quiet and do nothing? I tried fooling around with Dolphin. I went into Settings / Configure Dolphin... and

1. Disabled all services,
2. Unchecked everything in General / Previews.

I did the same to Konqueror.

As far as I can tell, this had no effect whatsoever. Dolphin still previews all the files it previewed before, and still tries to preview encrypted files when Information panel is open. I am running unmodified Dolphin 1.4 on KDE 4.4.3, the same ones that came with Slackware 13.1 x64.

Slackware :: Dolphin Hang And Crash On KDE 4.5.1 - 64-current

Sep 15, 2010

Is there any Slackware-current or Slackware64-current users in the LQ Slackware forum experiencing lags or slowdown on Dolphin file manager on KDE 4.5.1? I experienced this first on KDE 4.5.0, after the current update KDE to 4.5.1 I still have this problem.

Hovering mouse on a file can take a while, opening a text file with kwrite took several seconds and dolphin window will appear blank (like hang). Sometimes Dolphin crashed when opening file, changing directory or hovering mouse on a file.

Quick googling points to this discussion at which suggest a bug in libdbus.

Slackware :: LUKS Decryption Fails In Dolphin?

Nov 25, 2010

I've just did a fresh Slackware 13.1 install on a 32-bit box for friends of mine. It's an older machine with an AMD Athlon XP 2500. Generally everything works just fine, with one exception, however.Connecting a LUKS encrypted USB harddisk is notified by KDE. Clicking on the device icon in Dolphin opens the dialog asking for the LUKS passphrase. No error message appears, but the file system is not opened and mounted, anyway.However, before another attempt I have to "remove" the device in Dolphin.Output of dmesg:

# Nov 25 23:58:24 mycomputer kernel: device-mapper: ioctl: unable to remove open device temporary-cryptsetup-3023

Slackware :: Dolphin Only Opens Samba Shares Using Server IP?

May 10, 2011

Dolphin will only open Samba shares if I open them by typing in smb://SERVER-IP. It also does not show up in the Network section of Explorer under Windows 7. How do I fix this? The only Samba share icon that shows up in Dolphin under Network --> Samba Shares is Workgroup. If I click it it changes smb://workgroup, but then it does nothing and shows no files. Here is my Samba server's smb.conf file.

workgroup = WORKGROUP

Slackware :: Reading Cdrom And External Drive In Dolphin?

Jun 12, 2010

I inserted a disc and tried to access it through Dolphin. It shows up in the directory explorer thing as a disc and with the disc name, but it has a little / thing in the bottom corner of the icon, and when I try to access it, it gives me this long error on the bottom of the file area (can't remember what all it said, something about 'harvey' and being unable to find the directory in /etc/fstab). The same thing happened with an external drive, which seemed to work fine before but now has the same problem.

Slackware :: Informed That Sftp An 'invalid Protocol' When Trying To Connect From Dolphin

May 22, 2010

I downloaded Slackware64-current to give it a try on my laptop and all went well as usual. However when trying to connect to another computer from Dolphin via sftp I was informed that sftp is an 'invalid protocol'. I can use ftp, though. Same thing happens with Konqueror. Using Konsole I can successfully start sftp, although that is not exactly what I want or need. For me, this is really a major problem as my office computer can only be accessed at home via secure shell. I need to be able to upload/download files and folders from there and from other machines. I wasn't really aware of how heavily I depend on this until now. Has anyone else run into this problem? If so, is there a fix or a workaround?

Slackware :: Dolphin Samba Share Firewall / Saying It Can't Find Any Workgroups On Local Network?

May 12, 2011

I just set up my firewall, and now I can't see any Samba workgroups. It says it can't find any workgroups on my local network, and it may be caused by a firewall. It is a firewall issue because if I disable my firewall, I can see the workgroup. What do I need to open on my firewall to see the workgroup? I am using Slackware64 13.37.

Here is how I set up my firewall.

iptables -P INPUT DROP

iptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -s -d -i lo -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p icmp -j ACCEPT

Slackware :: USB Devices Not Mountable From Kde?

Dec 17, 2010

i booted up this morning and got a surprise. when i plug in a usb drive normally, it pops up in the k message box, and i can choose too mount it. then it mounts no problem.

when i turned on the computer today, however, i plugged in my usb drive, and clicked to mount it, and lo and behold, i got a strange message:
'Could not mount the following device: USB 8GB'

when i choose more information, i get this:


org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.12" (uid=8691 pid=2415 comm="kdeinit4: plasma-desktop [kdeinit]) interface="org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume" member="Mount" error name="(unset)" requested_reply=0 destination="org.freedesktop.Hal" (uid=0 pid=1887 comm="/usr/sbin/hald))

im not entirely sure what this means. i can mount the drive manually through the terminal if it's running as root, but thats not a particularly practical way to do things, as i am a student and often have to switch USB drives and ipods many times a day.
